Rusty Brown is a continuing series of comics and comic strips by Chicago cartoonist Chris Ware, named after its protagonist. In the strip, Brown is shown as a young Nebraskan boy and an approaching-middle-age man, who has a lifelong obsession with the collection of action figures and similar pop cultural detritus, particularly Supergirl.
Rusty Brown's only friend throughout his life is Chalky White. White is also a collector of G.I. Joe and other action figures, but gives up collecting as he grows up, gets married, and starts a family, unlike his friend Rusty, who remains locked in a permanent manchild state, always looking for elements of his lost childhood like lunchboxes, Funny Face drink cups, and more.
